Can we admit that Obama has a really big stick?

Ive found in time the search on this forum was shit but if you google whatever keywords with the word hipinion, you get what you're looking for most of the time. I mean even when they keywords aren't exact.

My fellow Americans, do you really want to reelect a man whose attacks on my party would receive lukewarm responses from a focus group of rubes?

Actually the quote was from his spokesman, but still.

Did he really say "19th century botanists"?

That's because Erik Gloom, who suffers from an acute case of Florida residency, controls this thread's title.

Did you other Obamatards get your email from Jim Messina hinting that the campaign raised a trillion billion dollars in Q1 2012? Excited, despite Gloom's latest flip-flop bringing me down this morning.

Well I was exaggerating a bit, he did say Saturday was the largest single day of the campaign by number of donors.

When you set it as your cover, it looks like they're all looking directly at your profile picture.

I know that for some reason a lot of Americans look back fondly on Reagan, but the fact that it's accurate to assert that Reagan's insurgent right-wing radical views wouldn't make it in today's Republican party is even more damning than it sounds.

Not sure if this is the best thread for this, but the new pretend outrage seems to be getting mad that a jew made a jew joke about herself. She raises money for Obama and yet still has not been reprimanded for making fun of herself. God damn outrage.

Trying to figure out how people even came across this. Do repubs just troll every Obama staffer, aide, and intern they can, hoping for something?

obama is totally the current president :(

March jobs report: How bad is it?

The economy added 120,000 jobs in March, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and everyone’s disappointed. Analysts were expecting a much higher number, and the last three months have all seen growth above 200,000 jobs per month. So just how bad is the news?

First, there’s the most important number: At the moment, 12.7 million Americans are still looking for work and can’t find it. It will take a long time to put a serious dent in that figure. It would’ve taken somewhere between seven and twelve years to get back to full employment even if analyst predictions were correct and we added 205,000 jobs in March. Adding just 120,000 jobs makes the task much, much harder — 120,000 is barely enough to keep up with the monthly growth in population. Which means we’re just spinning our wheels.

One big question, however, is whether the BLS’s estimate for March is actually correct. As Ryan Avent points out, because there’s such a huge margin of error in these reports, there’s a 90 percent chance that the U.S. economy added somewhere between 20,000 and 220,000 jobs last month. In recent times, the jobs figures have gone up significantly every time they get revised in later months. Last August, everyone initially thought the economy added zero new jobs. That number was then revised to 100,000. So will that be true for March? Or is the economy really souring?

Meanwhile, there’s been a lot of talk lately about whether the freakishly warm winter had boosted the economy lately by, for instance, helping the construction industry get an early start. But that doesn’t seem to be borne out in the numbers. Construction jobs actually fell by 7,000 in March. That underscores the fact that the market for new homes is still quite weak. But it also suggests that there’s still, potentially, room to grow here going forward.

Two other things in the report. First, austerity no longer seems to be a drag on U.S. job creation. Government employment fell by only 1,000 jobs this time around — mainly because of the shrinkage in the U.S. Postal Service. Meanwhile, the income figures provided very slight good news: Monthly pay rose by 5 cents in the past month.

Still, it’s a weak report all around. We’ll know in a few months if March was actually as tepid as everyone thinks. In theory, the real significance of this report should be whether it convinces the Federal Reserve that a little more monetary stimulus is necessary. But that might be unlikely. Today’s jobs numbers are about in line with what the Federal Open Market Committee has been expecting. And if the Fed’s content with this report, then there's not much more help on the way.
